Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 13 January 2095 at 02:28.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1867" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2095 after 3 days on 20 January 2095 at 12:48.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1175 of Meeus index or 2128 from Brown series.
Length of current 1175 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1176 length.
Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of perigee on 9 January 2095 at 02:21 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 January 2095 at 03:56 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 383 991 km (238 601 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 464 km (251 944 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 23:02 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 1 February 2095 at 11:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
At 23:02 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
11 days after previous South standstill on 6 January 2095 at 01:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.121°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.116° in the next northern standstill on 19 January 2095 at 00:03 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 20 January 2095 at 12:48 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
